    My wife and I will be visiting our hometown in Punjab and during our stay there we would like to spend some time in Himachal Pradesh.

    We would like some guidance to the places to see in Himachal Pradesh, as there are so many places and destinations to visit we don't even know where to start. We plan to visit Himachal Pradesh for 10 days, so can cover a number of places.

    There are many destinations in Himachal Pradesh, do you have a particular distance you want to cover or are you willing to visit destinations which are at a distance as well?

    No one goes back without visiting Nek Chand's Rock Garden in Chandigarh. Nek Chand is no more but his garden lives. It is a 18 acre rock garden with originality.

    What you see in the image is just tiny bit.

    Thanks for the information iamawriter, but I actually just wanted to know about places in Himachal Pradesh and not places in Punjab.

    @ Shiv - Would you suggest going to Chail as well?
